Fredericton, N.B.

 

Though it is hard to imagine, soon the leaves will turn and start to fall, and thoughts will turn to winter and all that it brings.

We firmly believe no one should be left out in the cold.

Start time is 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, October 27. Race kit pick-up will be held at the Delta Marriott Fredericton between 12:00 – 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 26.

Let’s raise some funds to help our friends and restore dignity.

The Fredericton Homeless Shelters Inc. was established in 1983 by a group of people to provide temporary housing for people who suffered from house fires or other natural disasters with a small mention of the transient population. Its mission is and to some extent has always been to restore human dignity to those who were experiencing homelessness in Fredericton and the surrounding areas. Since then, the Fredericton Homeless Shelters have expanded to three shelters, the Men’s Shelter, Grace House for Women, and Brunswick Home Transitional Housing. Together, the shelters provide temporary housing to over 300 individuals every year.
